You can follow me on Twitter for the World Series of Poker

May 27, 2009

Nope. Not gonna apologize for never posting on my blog anymore. Because once I apologize and say I’m gonna write more, it never happens.

However, I will tell you that the very talented Manuel Reese of Stigler, Oklahoma is redesigning this bad boy. Might take a month or so before the new look is debuted.

The point of this post: some of you might be interested in following my progress at the World Series of Poker this year. The World Series is pretty much poker’s holy ground, where every dreamer who knows how to play cards puts down some cash in the hopes of winning a championship gold bracelet and some serious cash.

Follow my progress on Twitter (where I can update from the casino in real time on my phone); my Twitter name is stephenamurphy.

I am going to definitely play in three events (there are 57 in all), possibly four. The days I will play:

Saturday, May 30, $1,000 buy-in

Saturday, June 20, $1,500 buy-in

Saturday, June 27, $1,500 buy-in

And the iffy that I still haven’t made up my mind yet: The main event, Sunday, July 5, $10,000 buy-in.

Just so you all don’t think I lost my mind, all of the money that I am going to put up for the World Series is profit from my poker playing over the past six months. I’m not spending my lunch money on this. I’ve been successfully grinding out a profit in the past few months to allow me to take these chances in these big tourneys.

What’s at stake? Well, the winner of the $1,000 buy-in will probably get more than $800,000. The winner of the main event — $8.5 million. Of course, more than 5,000 players are likely to sign up for both, so there will be a lot of work to be done.

Anyway, hope all of you who still manage to check this stale site are doing well.

    do you get free drinks during the WSOP. cause if things aren’t looking good, you could always drink your money back.

    Ha, that’s a lot of booze. But yes, I’m sure they are free.
